Edward Burne-Jones

Audio-described tour

Audio description tour of one of the last Pre-Raphaelites, Edward Burne-Jones, who brought imaginary worlds to life in awe-inspiring paintings, stained glass windows and tapestries.

Born in 1833,  Burne-Jones rejected the industrial world of the Victorians, looking instead for inspiration from medieval art, religion, myths and legends.

He made spectacular works depicting Arthurian knights, classical heroes and Biblical angels – working across painting, stained glass, embroidery, jewellery and more. With his friend William Morris he was a pioneer of the arts and crafts movement, which aimed to bring beautiful design to everyone.

Seats and hearing support earphones are provided.

Please meet at the Manton Studio from 10.30 am for tea, coffee and cake. The exhibition will start at 11 am. Tours last until about 12.15 pm.
